The Office of the Civil Defense said the flooding affected more than 25,900 people, including 2,242 who were evacuated from their communities in seven northern provinces and Metro Manila. Many have since returned home. The OCD said 43 villages in Pampanga and Nueva Ecija were still underwater on Saturday. Officials blamed garbage-clogged drains for the quick rise and slow recession of floodwaters in Metro Manila. The seasonal monsoon rains that drenched wide areas of Luzon were aggravated by a low-pressure system that swept through the region.
